[SB012BBE], Letter from A B Wyley to Erastus Wiman, September 19th, 1882

Editor's Notes

Have just discussed Finney electric motor, subject of clipping you sent. Tests in Pittsburgh confirmed correctness of its principle, despite mechanical flaws. It's an overhead conductor system. Practical foundry man I spoke with said it's a bigger thing than the Westinghouse air brake, "which is the highgest praise a Pittsburgher knows for an invention."
